It’s been a rough week as we’ve all settled back into the groove of working; the monotonous routine of commuting, dealing with rush hour to and fro, and working a 9 to 5 shift. It’s certainly a new year, but nothing feels new about it.

So, naturally, we tap into our inner escapist desires and indulge in the little things the new year has to offer. Like the return of our favorite television shows from hiatus, the anticipation of spring, a short, yet wonderful three day weekend courtesy of MLK, and of course, new beauty products. January is peak time for our favorite brands to roll out a slew of new products to welcome in the new year, and we’ve compiled the latest and greatest below:
